Altman Z Score – Meaning And Application In Excel

What is The Altman Z Score?

Altman Z-Score is a score that indicates the solvency and debt repaying capacity of a company listed on a public exchange. This technique/template is usually used for publicly traded companies in the manufacturing sector. It is a barometer of the credit strength of a particular company.
New York University’s Finance professor Edward Altman defined and named the score in 1967. Since then, there were various evolutions in the score, and it has been a decisive measure of profitability and liquidity of a company.
Investors look at the Altman Z score to gauge the possibility of a firm going bankrupt in the near future. This model is a valuable predictor of the financial distress of firms. It has helped various investors of the Wall Street in deciding whether to invest in a company or not.

Past Performance of the Score

The score has evolved and developed over the years, which has resulted in an increase in its accuracy. From 1969 to 1975, Altman found 86 companies on the verge of bankruptcy using this score. In the 1976 to 1995 period, he found 110 companies and 120 companies in the upcoming three years. We can see that the number of financially distressed companies kept on increasing over the years. Majority of these companies were manufacturing companies. The accuracy in these years ranged from 82% – 94%
In 2012, he refined the score and came out with Altman Z Score Plus, which helped measure the credit risk of all types of companies.

Parameters of the Score

The five financial ratios used for calculating the Z Score are:
• Working Capital/ Total Assets
Negative working capital would indicate a low degree of liquidity and solvency, and positive working capital would indicate a high degree of the same.
• Retained Earnings/ Total Assets
This ratio shows the total amount of retained earnings out of the total assets.
• Earnings before Interest and Tax/ Total Assets
The EBIT ratio depicts a company’s ability to produce enough earnings to finance the expenses and operations and still be in profit.
• Market Value of Equity/ Total Assets
This ratio can be interpreted in terms of investor reliability in the company’s performance.
• Sales/ Total Assets
This ratio depicts the usage of assets to generate revenues.

With the help of the Z score, investors can gauge the financial strength of the company. It highlights the possibility of the firm going bankrupt in the near future. MarketXLS provides its template for the calculation of the Z score. It also highlights the criteria and the formula using which the score has been calculated.
This score is significant for all those investors who are willing to invest in growth stocks. The primary reason behind this is that the growth stocks are the stocks of companies who usually have a good amount of leverage and debt in their balance sheet. This score helps assess whether this debt will affect the firm’s financial performance in the long term and there are any chances of bankruptcy in the future.

Altman Z Score

Here comes the main question; how is Z score calculated? Z score is calculated using the five financial ratios and adding their weighted products as per the below formula:

Z score = 1.2*A + 1.4*B +3.3*C + 0.6*D + 1*E

Where, A = Working Capital / Total Assets
B = Retained Earnings / Total Assets
C = EBIT / Total Assets
D = Market Value of Equity / Total Assets
E = Sales / Total Assets

How to interpret Z score?

The financial soundness of the firm can be gauged based on the below legend:
Financially sound if greater than 2.99
Caution required if between 2.77 – 2.99
Likely to go bankrupt within two years if between 1.8 – 2.7
Likelihood of bankruptcy is high if below 1.8
Average for non-bankrupt companies – 5.02
Average for bankrupt companies – (-0.29)
In this case, the Altman Z Score for MRVL stock is 11.87. This means that the company seems financially stable as it meets the criteria of the score.
